Confederation of Tomorrow Conference 2.0
In 1967 Ontario Premier John Robarts’ “Confederation of Tomorrow” conference took place on the top floor of the Toronto-Dominion Centre. That conference was about two things: dialogue and leadership.
On Monday, December 11 – fifty years later – the “Confederation of Tomorrow 2.0” conference begins at the TD Centre. And once again, the Premiers of Ontario and Quebec have an opportunity to better the country through dialogue and leadership.
This is Premier Wynne’s opportunity to lay the foundations for a Made-in-Canada electricity grid by using the conference as an historically fitting platform to say “yes” to Quebec’s offer of their clean, abundant water power. Hydro Quebec is willing to sell us a 20-year supply of electricity at 1/3 the cost of re-building the Darlington Nuclear Station.
Working together Premiers Wynne and Couillard can provide the political leadership to create an east-west electricity grid which will move us towards a renewable energy future and lower electricity bills. And a better, more unified, Canada.
